Hi Cynthia,  

I have connected with you through Billy Renkl.  I am an art professor at USC in Columbia, SC and a book artist.  It is because of our similar interests that Billy sent your name to me.

Hi Cindy,
I was just at Shakerag. Thought of you. Thanks for the fabulous t-shirt. I told Lesley (a star of my workshop) to say Hi to you. Hope you are having a good summer. Let's get together sometime in 2010! SK

Hi Cindy, Such fond memories of our meeting at APSU, and again with your wonderful work in BEYOND WORDS. I'm now full-time in my studio at last and back to making books. Shakerag Workshops are going on now - Susan King and Shanna Leino are the book folk this year. I'm not attending, but am in and out, as its just down the road. If you come this way, do give me a call and we'll catch up over lunch! Best, Arlyn

Hi Cynthia, seems like RBS was a while ago now. How are things over in Tennessee?
